Question Anybody Else With Serious Medical Conditions

Maybe I am the only here, but I actually got into card making as my physical health declined. I was wondering if anyone else has a similar story. I used to be quite active- walking all over, playing tennis, etc. Unfortunately none of that is possible anymore. I am grateful to have found something I enjoy; I just wish the circumstances were different.

Mirabella, can truly relate to your situation. Was a very active person and now am very limited. Some days are better than others... I take everything one moment at a time and trust God's loving grace.

I really appreciate you responding. I admit I was feeling a bit vulnerable having posted that. I used to be very active, too. Having an especially hard time at the moment. Isn't the crafting a welcome distraction? That is my feeling, even when I am frustrated with my efforts .

Remember you are never alone in any of this... do not be too hard on yourself for your frustrating feelings. I try to remember that feelings change and with me they change often.

I believe that stamping is a blessing that I received just when I needed it the most

Hi Mirabella, I got into stamping and paper crafting due to not be able
to do the things I used to do anymore.
Finding this hobby has really made me happy and I get lost in it for
hours.
I still get frustrated when I can't do something that I know I used to do.
But then I'm reminded of the things I CAN do.

Sorry to just be responding. For some reason I was not aware there were more responses. Thanks to each of you. I do feel alone, very much so. Making cards is usually the best part of any day. I offered to make a card for someone at my parent's church so that gives me a project for today.
